At Murphy & Prachthauser, we are proud of our recently launched #GiveBackMKE initiative, and we are thrilled that our December donation will be going to support Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin.

What is #GiveBackMKE?

Our recent charitable giving initiative is intended to highlight one charity each month, for 12 months, and provide support to help them continue providing resources to the local community. As personal injury attorneys in Milwaukee, we take pride in our community and serving the great people of southeastern Wisconsin.

Donating the Magic Of Storytime to Children

Our team at Murphy & Prachthauser believes in the power of education and wanted to provide a donation that would educate, entertain and inspire. As such, we selected Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Eastern Wisconsin. We took a look at their online wishlist and noticed the call for books -- to allow families to spend time together and to encourage and foster young imaginations. In our minds, nothing could be better than donating books so families could enjoy a heartwarming story, time and time again, and so the donation could last for years to come.

We sought out local children’s book author and friend, Joanne Murphy, and purchased 25 signed books to donate and leave on site for families to enjoy together. Joanne’s book, titled ‘The Jellybean Band’ chronicles the story of seven jellybeans and their dream of being a successful band. This lighthearted story, with beautiful illustrations, teaches the importance of perseverance and hard work, teaching children that even a jellybean can achieve their dreams.

Our heartfelt thanks to RMHC Eastern Wisconsin for all of their hard work, supporting and keeping families together!

As Milwaukee’s “home away from home” for families while their children receive medical treatment at local hospitals, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Eastern Wisconsin is a staple in the local community. They provide services to not only local Wisconsin families, but also those from from all 50 states, and from many countries around the world. Last year, RMHC in Wauwatosa served more than 1,000 families at little or no cost to them, so families are able to stay together during medical treatments.
